J-Day3- Medium Restart
Time Management is a process that needs to allow you to complete the goals you set for yourself by the hour divided into two thirty-minute time frames or by three as twenty minutes time segments.
If you can complete three different Research things in twenty minutes each hour. Then you are a get-it-done speed pro. This is the time frame I try to use when Watching Youtube Videos for research — “In general Youtube videos are between 7–15 minutes per topic.
Of course, there are some Creators out there who go longer. Hence I sometimes schedule myself for two videos per hour. Occasionally if the topic is merited I watch for a full hour.
One of the pitfalls of researching youtube videos is that there are usually so many Creators on any given topic. They list these darn Videos right next to the one you are watching and even sometimes they are off-topic. But they look so interesting and so you then can use up your valuable time by watching them.
Medium How to Research or Topic Research:
When I need specific information on how to or the best way to do Medium stuff, I just go to Google and type in the word Medium — Topic. The Topic I need to know about is there. A whole list of them.
I go down this google listing of the relevant information that I am looking for. I open that page either in a new tab or as a new window and minimize that window. Depending on the topic I have between five to ten selections.
I find that a four to five-minute article fits nicely into my twenty to thirty-minute Time Management System. And if I have to, there is time to do a couple of longer reading time articles to read.
When I research a topic, that others have written or expressed in a Youtube Video. I write them down as I hear or read what I want to know. I hit that Pause button or stop reading to do so.
